  • “Centering Love”

    “Centering Love”

    Sunday, December 3, 2023, 10:30 a.m.

    Rev. Bill Gupton leads this worship service.

    The changes and controversies that Unitarian Universalism (and many other American religions) are experiencing are reflective of the times in which we live. How might the Love that is the spirit of our church help us navigate these turbulent waters?

    At 10:30 a.m., join us in the sanctuary, or click this Zoom link.

  • “Try a Little Kindness”

    “Try a Little Kindness”

    Sunday, December 10, 2023, 10:30 a.m.

    Rev. Bill Gupton leads this worship service.

    Anger and mean-spiritedness abound in our fractured society. Social media silos, politicians and pundits now exacerbate the problem. Kindness may be out of style, but maybe – just maybe – it’s time to revisit what was once a rather commonly held virtue. And just in time for the holiday season! (Be sure to stick around after the service as we decorate our sanctuary Christmas tree and share in a potluck lunch.)

    Blue Christmas UU Worship

    Rev. Bill Gupton and Rev. Jenn Gracen

    Saturday, December 16, 2023, 4:00 p.m., joint service at St. John’s UU Church.

    Rev. Bill Gupton and Rev. Jenn Gracen will lead this special worship service.

    Rev. Bill Gupton will be collaborating with Rev. Jenn Gracen of St. John’s Unitarian Universalist Church to co-lead a “Blue Christmas” service at St. John’s on Saturday, December 16 at 4:00 p.m. in the St. John’s sanctuary. St. John’s is located at 320 Resor Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45220. The service will also be shown online; watch the website for a link.

    A Blue Christmas service is a time for those who find the holidays emotionally difficult because of the loss of a loved one or other personal or family struggles. This special worship will offer a quieter, slower pace to provide space for grief and silence, which are often aspects of this season that go unacknowledged in the wider community. Join us and take time to simply be and to seek healing stillness.

    “ ’Tis the Season”

    Sunday, December 24, 2023, 10:30 a.m.

    Rev. Bill Gupton leads this worship service.

    Yes, Virginia, there is a Sunday morning worship service on Christmas Eve! Every few years, Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday – but that’s no reason to stay at home. In fact, it’s all the more reason to gather in the Heritage sanctuary to celebrate the season as we sing familiar songs, enjoy familiar stories, and greet familiar (and maybe even some new) faces.

    Join us as we renew a tradition long cherished by the HUUC community – our Christmas Eve candlelight service. Last year, a snow and ice storm cancelled the service. But this Christmas Eve we will make up for lost time, basking in the glow of candlelight and song, story and silence. Our Choir will sing lovely music, our children’s excitement will be contagious, and our sanctuary will be beautiful and glorious as we welcome one and all into the magic that is Heritage Church on Christmas Eve.
